Triathlon Dreams…er…Nightmares?

Triathlon Dreams…er…Nightmares?

I’m such a dork.  The last few nights I’ve been having these ridiculous dreams about getting my new bike and finding a tri-suit for my upcoming (more like eventual) triathlon.  They’re not really BAD dreams, just stressful ones where I spend my time searching high and low for one or the other and they’re reoccurring over and … Continue reading

Progress Update– it’s been a while…

Progress Update– it’s been a while…

So a few exciting things have happened lately.  One, I’m SO close to breaking the 200 barrier.  I’m at 201lbs this morning.  I’ve been fluctuating between the same fricken 5lbs for three weeks now but I feel like today is solid and hopefully the scale will continue to move down…or not.  I mean, I want … Continue reading

A Triathlon Is In My Sight!

A Triathlon Is In My Sight!

I sold my old bike today.  It was a bit emotional as it was my first investment in my weight loss journey.  I bought it in 2010 more than a year before my gastric bypass surgery and though I didn’t ride it as much as I had planned when I bought it, it still symbolized … Continue reading

Detox Round-Up

I have been on a 10 day cleanse as part of a six week fat-loss challenge at my gym and although it wasn’t torturous by any means, I’m VERY glad that today is the last day…I want a piece of freaking cheese! Today marks my last day of detox and I can’t say I’m sad … Continue reading

Change and Gratitude

Two things were on my mind today… One:  I started a body fat challenge today that my gym is doing and I’m pretty excited about  it.  I was telling some friends this morning how I feel confident that I can do it.  What’s funny about that is that they have done a similar detox as … Continue reading

My Rules for My Success

My Rules for My Success

These are my rules that I follow to help me succeed.  They may not be right for everyone, but they are small steps that can be taken to help anyone get on the right path. I’m a firm believer in baby steps and think the “All or Nothing” approach is what leads us to failure … Continue reading

Water, water, WATER!

Water, water, WATER!

We all know that water is a necessity yet somehow many of us (indluding me) find it hard to drink enough water in a day… I LOVE water, in-fact that’s all I drink except for the very occasional soda but I still struggle with getting ENOUGH.  I have a Pur faucet filter thingy so my water tastes … Continue reading
